Travel Blogs from Santa Teresa
There are lots to love in Santa Teresa, not least of which is... the beach. Endless strip of white sand with near-perfect waves luring surfers into the warm water. Keep in mind this is the end of the wet season so the weather is not as perfect as it will be in a few weeks, and the beaches still carry some of the wood branches brought by the storms …
After a week in Montezuma we are off to Santa Teresa, an easy westbound drive across the southern tip of the Nicoya peninsula. After Cóbano the road becomes pretty rugged and narrow as we go deep in the jungle. After the second river crossing I start doubting that we are going in the right direction. There is no cell or GPS signal but the car's …
... An open mic night at Organico featured a talented Willie Nelson doppelganger and Mama Africa, a middle-aged, overweight, drunken Caribbean native who better suited a comedy bar as she sung about medicinal cookies and various types of "bananas" as she stared deep into my eyes from up on the stage - a very intimidating moment.
I now had my own personal yoga teacher for private classes with me. The next morning, Tina and I walked off the hotel porch and ...
... was glad to have met them and I couldn’t thank them enough for everything they’d done. At 11:30am Joaco and I walked to the bus stop where we waited for my bus. It was great getting to know Joaco, he and I are very similar indeed. We have similar ideas and I’m sure I’ll be seeing him soon, either in Minnesota or other travels somewhere in the future. At 12:00 noon my bus had arrived, so I said hasta luego to Santa Teresa as I was one my way to Montzuma, Costa ...
... interesting points were made. We were all exhausted and ready for bed but our professors had a surprise campfire waiting for us! It was really fun sitting around making smores and playing games. It felt exactly like summer camp and it was great.
The next morning it was time to depart for the Boruca territory and I found myself wishing we could stay longer despite the bug problem, lack of electricity, and ice cold showers.

TravelPod Member ReviewsCanaima Chill House Santa Teresa
Rooms are very spacious, especially the loft ones with high ceilings. The hotel is well built, beds are comfortable, and the staff is excellent. The location is ideal: far enough from the main road that you don't get bothered by the noise, yet close enough that you can walk to the beach, even if you carry a surfboard, as long as you are reasonably fit: it is a steep and rugged terrain (I find it fun). We particularly appreciated the "quiet after 9pm" policy which is a great plus compared to many hotels in Santa Teresa and Playa Carmen that cater to the party crowd. We were here to relax in a peaceful atmosphere and Canaima Chill House was the perfect getaway for that. It's one of those few places that are better for real than on the photos. Although the slogan includes the word "rustic", the hotel offers full comfort and is very well built. It doesn't have AC but the location on a hill offers natural cooling, complemented by ceiling fans inside the mosquito nets. We stayed 9 days and didn't miss AC once. The staff at Canaima is extremely helpful and goes way beyond the normal call of duty to make sure you have a great experience. Oh, and did I mention that you see plenty of wildlife in the trees surrounding the hotel, including monkeys, birds, iguanas and squirrels? Sometimes the wildlife wakes you up a bit earlier than you'd like... but hey, it's jungle... and if you want to make the best of your stay in Costa Rica you will rise early anyway! I highly recommend Canaima Chill House to any traveler looking for a peaceful, relaxed and beautiful place to stay in Santa Teresa.
